Background

An avenue of trees in honour of employees of the Sunnyside Woollen Mills who enlisted during World War One was planted by union members along the main approach to the mills in December 1918. Known as the Sunnyside Woollen Mill Avenue of Honour each tree was plaqued with the name of a World War One soldier associated with the mill. It is one of the nine Ballarat avenues of honour. [1]

Notes

An avenue of trees in honour of employees of the Sunnyside Woollen Mills who have enlisted was planted along the main approach to the mills on Saturday. Amongst those present was the mayor (Councillor A. Bell, M. L. C.), who is the chairman of the company.[2]
